Chicago-based hotel group signs deal to use innovative talent platform from Mogul, Inc.  


(NEW YORK) – Mogul, Inc ., a disruptor in the HR Tech and executive recruiting industry, today announced that it has signed a deal with Aparium Hotel Group, a Chicago-based hotel group that was named to the “Top 25 Hotel Brands in the World” by Travel + Leisure.    

According to the deal, Aparium Hotel Group will use Mogul’s unique Talent Acquisition Platform to recruit diverse candidates. Mogul’s platform, powered by proprietary software filters, has disrupted the HR Technology industry by offering recruiters multiple ways to source candidates, including by gender, ethnicity, disability status, and veteran status, without limiting search results. No other talent acquisition platform offers this combination of abilities right now.   

Many employers are increasingly replacing their mainstream talent platforms with Mogul’s diversity recruiting platform, as traditional systems often limit the number of search results or have algorithms that favor non-diverse candidates. Contrarily, Mogul’s platform does not limit search results, and its proprietary algorithms and patent-pending filters allow employers to search more easily and more deeply for diverse candidates.   

“At Aparium, our hotels are unique, with differing roots and history. Our approach to recruiting our talented associates is very similar. We believe that creating a respectful, inclusive environment creates a sense of belonging and empowerment for our associates, and ultimately, that translates into a better atmosphere for all, including our guests,” said Timothy Ryan, Chief Operating Officer of Aparium Hotel Group.    

Aparium Hotel Group is a management company with hotels in diverse locations such as Detroit, Minneapolis, Kansas City, and more. Aparium celebrates true neighborhood character and believes in bringing to life a city’s authentic self, uncovering flavors found not only along their main thoroughfares but also on their intriguing side streets. Like the cities they inhabit, each of our growing collection of independent hotels is engaging, inspiring, individual, and altogether real.  

“We are pleased to subscribe to Mogul’s talent acquisition platform and gain access to a wider range of diverse talent. It’s a really good fit for us,” said Ryan.
